July 29, 2021 - 
Colorado Judicial Institute 

The Colorado Judicial Institute’s popular CLE program, Straight Talk with a Judge, is back in July and exploring the topic of ADR.

Why focus on ADR for a CLE taught by judges?

Courts are ordering mediation and other ADR techniques in Civil Case Management Orders (CMO) with increasing frequency and in more legal issues. Colorado courts have found that incorporating ADR techniques can resolve cases more speedily, efficiently, cost-effectively, and satisfactorily than if a court tried the case.

As always, judges teach all of our tracks, and our small class size and interactive format mean you get to ask the questions the judges are answering. All participants will receive one Ethics CLE Credit and one General CLE Credit.

Ethics Credit
All attendees will be registered in the ethics track.

General Credits
Attendees will select one track from the list to the right at registration.

Asian Pacific American Bar Association 

Registration link: https://apaba-colorado.org/event-4334865

Postponing, and ultimately canceling, the 2020 APABA Banquet was a difficult but necessary decision resulting from health and safety guidance and ongoing uncertainty. As disheartening as it was to cancel the 2020 APABA Banquet, we are especially excited to host the 2021 APABA Banquet on August 26, 2021 and provide a hybrid format: in-person at a spacious downtown Denver office building terrace and concurrently on a virtual platform.

For more information and to RSVP for the 2021 APABA Banquet, please click here for the link. In-person attendance will be subject to capacity, available on a first-come first serve basis (based on ticket purchase date and submission of attendee(s) information).

2020 APABA Banquet ticket holders have been contacted with a request to confirm attendance (or send questions) by July 7 to apabacolorado@gmail.com.

There's also still time (until June 30) to submit nominations for the Minoru Yasui Community Service Award and Governor Ralph Carr Award. For more information or to submit a nomination, please use the registration link.

We look forward to seeing you!
